    Only made one stop the other day in Cincinnatti while visiting relatives because I wanted to be with them most of the time, just posting the few finds now.

    I usually know well enough to avoid Lauren Ralph Lauren, but I know that this women's piece can fetch around $50-70 on eBay, so I'll throw down the $6 for it now. Size 12

    This is my highlight as of late. 1930s Overcoat, I'm 99% certain this is deadstock. Did some research on the store, apparently "The Hub" changed its name in 1951. This is by far the heaviest coat I've ever felt.

    I've posted before. Do a search. I lurk more than post though. Anyone ever hit a huge church rummage sale in a wealthy neighborhood?

    NWOT Gustin selvedge. Paid up a bit but they're my size and unworn/crispy. Any way to tell one redline Gustin from the next? They don't feel particularly hefty so I don't think they're anything too crazy.
